MF is the only way with macro.

Nonsense. Since I got my 100L I don't think I've MFed a single macro shot. On a 60D or 7D it'll AF in AI Servo with a single AF point all the way down to 1:1, and beyond with short extensions or a TC, much better than I can.

Since that revelation I've wondered about other recent lenses. Who'da thought the 40/2.8 STM on a 31mm extension tube could AF this -

Don't let conventional wisdom hold you back. Servo with a single point, try it.

Great pics, I have the non L 100mm and will try the AI Servo with single AF point in the future, I've always shot my macros with MF.
